The Queensland Poetry Festival

Poet David Stavanger interviewed me in the lead up to the Queensland Poetry Festival (QPF) 2014. I enjoyed the breadth of the questions and the reference to David Byrne’s interview of himself. This is the David Byrne interview.
I have three performances at the festival, they come under the QPF provided titles of Jungle of Drums, Night Uncurls its Palm and The Unknown Future of Everything. I set all these under the line “Do you know my poetry?” From the film Dead Man, which has been informing the structure of the manuscript I have been working and has the working title of for all the veronicas (the dog who staid).
I like titles and names. Read the interview on the QPF website, and check out David Stavanger’s new book The Special published by University of Queensland Press.
